This image was shot on transparency film and the transparency was manipulated further using a Daylab printer and Polaroid pull apart film where the film is pulled apart before a positive can be processed. The dyes remaining on the Polaroid film were then transferred by rolling onto blotting paper. This is a very unique technique as you will never be able to reproduce the same image twice. There will always be a different amount of dye remaining on the film each time you do it making each image different from the last.

    I just love this process. . . and I adore the image in this shot.

    it’s a beautiful title and there is great emotion in the eyes again. I am amazed how much of that still comes through in this style. Very powerful. . . the title makes me think of how we seem to always want to trace back when we are stuck in that blue place. . . to find our way through and to understand what was before or what could have been. . .

  • nicolas nicolas….what am i to do with you?
    how true are the words you speak
    thank you!

    What’s wonderful about the technique you use is that it’s very similar to monoprinting…only one copy. This is a wonderful image! The colour blue relates to peace and communication, which you do very well! Keep at it…you have a wonderful talent which is shining through! It really is!S

  • peace and communication, i won’t forget that!
    thank you…i appreciate your comments x

    She is a beauty captured with your amazing chemical process. Love the way the background is like an abstract painting. Her clothes could be a straight jacket or corset the way it is tied at the back. May the Goddess bless you! I see she has already been doing that with your amazing talent.

  • helen, what a wonderful thing to say…v e r y insightful, she wears a corset here….these days she may wear a straight jacket….may the Goddess bless her too. ;-) x
